Why is it difficult to find Marriage Rituals relating to Indigenous Australians?

Related to Ceremony

The most common issue is, that apart from there being 2 main types of Indigenous Australians (Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders), each tribe has it's own distinct beliefs, ceremonies and rituals. There is no 'one-size-fits-all', so it is important to research the ceremonial practices of your selected tribe or blood ancestry. Talk to me today about getting married - Call: 1800 229 142
